Method

Turn your oven to 150°C/Gas Mark 2.

Take a large mixing bowl and beat your eggs, then stir in the flour. Coarsely grate the potatoes and squeeze out any excess water using a tea towel. Add this to the egg and flour along with coarsely grated beetroot and chopped spring onions. Season with salt and milled pepper and mix everything well.

Place a large frying pan over a medium-hot heat and add the groundnut oil. When hot take a heaped tablespoon of the latke mixture to the pan, flatten slightly so they are about 2cm thick and leave to cook until golden and crisp (about 3-4 minutes) flip over and cook on the other side until golden and crisp. Pop into the oven to keep warm whilst you prepare the second batch.

When you have all 8 made you are ready to serve. Place the latkes onto your serving plates, top with waves of smoked salmon and finish with a little crème fraiche, chopped chives and a milling of fresh pepper.

Alternatives to beetroot that also work really well are: swede, courgette, mouli, parsnip or squash.

Alex Mackay's roast King Edwards with lamb cutlets, smoked paprika, peppers, onions & olives recipe

Alex Mackay's Roast King Edwards with Lamb Cutlets, Smoked Paprika, Peppers, Onions & Olives

"The first time I discovered smoked paprika was on roast potatoes served as tapas with smoked paprika mayonnaise. Before then, I'd assumed chorizo was spiced with plain paprika and then the whole sausage was smoked. It was a revelation and I've had a long lasting smoked paprika period since then. I serve the potatoes and pepper mixture with lamb as a little celebration of Spring."
